12:02 pm
>> dave: a new report showing the average driver stuck in traffic is wasting a whopping $1880 a year. how do they want to fix it? with billions more with infrastructure spending wosmt it work or only be a waste of time. welcome to forbes on fox. let's go with steve forbes and our panel. we got a full house today. steve, you say slam the brakes on this plan, why? >> because government involved is going to be a waste. you look at other infrastructure fed ex and ups and railroads got out the way, great infrastructhe private equity involved, public-partnerships private partnerships and you get more for less. you get bloated wages and more bang for the buck by bringing in free market. >> dave: what is wrong with the free market taking the place of
12:03 pm
government boondoggles? >> for one thing it is not happening quickly enough. we have a serious problem that all of us should agree to. there are certain things like roadways that you cannot give a monopoly to a private company. >> dave: it's a public monopoly? >> don't you feel better with all of us own the government having control over the roadway than one private company. >> dave: i've seen so many of those public projects with guys sitting around. they take five times as long as private project. rick has a point on infrastructure. it is crumbling. listen to what ray lahood pitched this infrastructure plan. >> i don't think you would be turning off people in america because they know america is one big pothole right now. >> dave: there are a lot of potholes? >> i agree. what happened with the last
12:04 pm
infrastructure spending in the surplus spend. guess how much highways got? a big, fat zero. in new jersey it was sent on highway ramps to nowhere. >> dave: there are road to nowheres in new hampshire. >> that one ended up in a concrete wall. the scan village, population less than 200, they got a $15 million airport. why not newark or las vegas. it's a big pork barrel project where the states spend the money and they get to a monopoly on this money. >> dave: i am thinking of the big dig in boston and terribly corrupt. scheduled for $2 billion and ended up costing $15 billion. new york has a second avenue
12:05 pm
subway system they have been building for 40 years. do we need more of this? >> we don't necessarily need more of this. going a back to steve's point, public private partnership, it takes a certain amount of money and spending from the government actually i think we need to be spending money on infrastructure maybe more smart than the examples. if you look at infrastructure spending when it is done correctly it gives you a bang for a buck. it can create economic and job growth. countless studies a recent one from the san francisco federal reserve that show this. down the road you see less air pollution and less health care. >> dave: so many times you see delays on projects and corruption where local contractors try to get as much as they can out of the government. is that ever going to change? >> no, it's not going to change. when rick unger says we have an
12:06 pm
emergency, i worry about my taxes going up. if we want better roads and less traffic it is easy. bid it on these road building to private motivated entities. you will see innovation and prices for the times that you drive those roads. it's through market forces, don't hand it to the government. >> dave: rich, we had an ice rink in central park. it's a beautiful place. the city government was working on it for years and cost overruns and finally donald trump stepped in and said, hey, look, give it to me i'll do it in six months at half the cost. he did it even faster than that. doesn't steve have a point that private sector should be linda in author these things? >> steve makes a great point. i understand rick's impulse here. if you go back to the 1930s, a
12:07 pm
lot of public works projects were accomplished and did pretty well. you have things like the golden gate bridge four years. now it takes seven years to build an access road to the golden gate bridge. we have extraordinary stopping power from environmental groups, public work unions have slowed down everything. it just doesn't work like liberals want it to work anymore. we have to do a private mechanism. >> dave: let me throw a bone in rick's direction. we have an incredible highway system in the united states. that was done in the 1950s. can't we replicate that when it comes to bridges? >> if we couldn't do it under president obama in 2009 when they were spending hundreds of billions of dollars, the answer is no. the regulatory morass is insurmountable and politics play a role. we waste hundreds of billions of
12:08 pm
dollars on mass transit. it has a role in certain parts of the country but tens of billions that could have been used for real infrastructure. >> dave: so there may have been a time when massive projects, there is too many regs to make it efficient. >> i don't see the private market stepping up to do the job. wait a minute, this country is turning into a third world nation. our infrastructure is truly crumbling. >> they are using private contractors and there are questions at that level. we have an oil and gas boom. our infrastructure at that level is poor. there is a bottleneck at the refineries. we're going to need more than pipelines to make that part of the economy. >> dave: rick has a point when he goes after monopolies but the worst is the government. all the private sector competition and that leads to corruption, no? >> i think you can point to
12:09 pm
that, but you can point to positive examples where infrastructure spending has done good. salt lake city is a good example. and also one of the strongest job rate growths. the transportation has a direct link to that. >> utah is low tax republican state. come on. >> it is. >> new york and san francisco and chicago with the corruption and the public employee unions, forget it. >> dave: how many of these light rail programs to fuel efficiency very few, right? >> i come from southern california and they are never used at all. when we talk about infrastructure, yes, we have an impressive national highway system, but the unseen is how much more cheaply it would be built today if we left this to private profit motivated
